Transfer Planning

Last Updated Dec 2014

Planning Your Transfer

At NVCC, you can create your own pathway to a four-year degree and we are here to help! If you are interested in transferring from NVCC to another college or university, we will help you:

  • acquire information about transferring through individual counseling (email us to set up an appointment)
  • consider the Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP) and Dual Admissions Program (DAP).
  • look at transfer articulations with other colleges
  • meet transfer counselors from other colleges and universities
  • create a personalized pathway to earning a four-year degree.

Guaranteed & Dual Admission

Recent initiatives by the Connecticut Board of Regents (BOR) for Higher Education have placed a renewed focus on creating a seamless transfer process for CT Community College graduates to continue their education at the four state universities (CCSU, SCSU, WCSU, ECSU) and Charter Oak State College. Successful completion of such a transfer associate degree will offer the student guaranteed admission and junior status to the receiving university or Charter Oak State College without "course by course" transfer.

For more information, please visit:

We also have official articulation agreements with many local universities. These agreements outline courses a student should complete at NVCC and specify which credits the university will accept in order to make the transfer process as smooth as possible. 

We currently have agreements signed with the following colleges:

Fairfield University 

Quinnipiac University

Sacred Heart University 

University of Bridgeport

University of Hartford

University of New Haven

University of St. Joseph
